Details are presented of two series of experiments to investigate carbon determination in gas turbine combustion chambers. The first series employed a gravimetric technique to examine carbon distribution within the various zones of a combustor with the aim of identifying zones of formation and oxidation.

In the second series a fairly comprehensive investigation of the technique of measuring Smoke Number was made with the objective of obtaining details relevant to its accuracy and applicability. Mixtures of iso-octane and benzene were used as fuel, thereby permitting the effects of hydrogen content to be established. The results are correlated with othersome obtained previously.
